Surrounded by the history of centuries of design, the University boasts top design alumni all over the world – including Marcos Engineering. Situated on the same block as the legendary Cathedral ruins, leveled by fire bombs in WWII, the setting exudes history and the timeliness of British Car Design. From the Bristol s of the pre war to the Jaguars of post war, to stunning sports car design graduates that worked on the TSO, “Cov Uni” puts out the top designers year after year.
Marcos Engineering recently had the privileged and rare invitation to address over 150 students on MD Tony Stelliga’s theme “Bringing Back the Classic British Sports Car”. Topics covered included the definition of the product, the historical importance of Marcos and the embodiment of the soul and purpose of a sports car in the work designers need to consider.
“Specifications and Drawings are Important, but Energy, sound and purposeful definition of what the car is are critical to the success of a British Sports Car in the world wide automotive markets” said Tony Stelliga in his keynote address.
